A mysterious countdown was added to Britney Spears‘ website Tuesday morning promising “all eyes on me” on September 17. More specifically, the clock is counting down to 9:30 a.m. ET on September 17.
While it’s not explicitly stated what the clock is counting down to, it’s probably something related to Spears’ upcoming eighth studio album. Spears released “Ooh La La” for The Smurfs 2 earlier this year, but has not released a full album since 2011’s “Femme Fatale.” However, she’s recently teased new music several times, saying it’s coming “MUCH sooner than you think” and tweeting about dance rehearsals. Meanwhile, Spears’ producer Naughty Boy recently revealed that we could expect a single from Spears in a “couple of weeks,” which would match up with the countdown clock’s timeline.
While Spears has been tight-lipped about her upcoming album, producer William Orbit wrote on Facebook, “going to cut vocals in LA with Britney in a few weeks. We’ve songs to die for.” In addition to Orbit (who produced ) and Naughty Boy (Leona Lewis‘ “Trouble”), Spears is also working with her “Scream and Shout” collaborator Will.i.am on the as-yet-untitled eighth album.
